From theoretical-methodological materialist Discourse Analysis, in dialogue with the gender and race studies, this research proposals an analysis of constitution discourse in Brazilian black women movement during the 1980s and 1990s. As well, I might focus the formation of black women as a new political subject. We propose to study black women formation to a political subject in connection to a collective enunciation place of women and for women in discourse and in history, established upon the conflictive relation between feminist discourse and anti-racist discourse. Therefore discursive corpus of this research is constituted by enunciations of black women movement (newspapers, pamphlets, meeting decisions and open letters) and interviews, photos and videos of the present militants.
